With these changes I will bring the phone to my job tomorrow to try it out. If it doesn't ring I'll try and get the voltages to further troubleshoot. Steve

Quote from: mentalstampede on June 14, 2017, 11:43:05 AMI have seen those ringers installed in Stromberg Carlson and AE phones before. Since these phones were often used on party lines, perhaps a previous "refurbisher" was fond of using them to replace frequency ringers.
